Dynamic surface water maps of Canada from 1984 to 2019 Landsat satellite imagery

Detailed Description

This paper presents dynamic surface water products over Canada from the first in a series of satellite sensors that will be used to develop a multi-sensor dynamic surface water monitoring system. The dataset uses 1984 to 2019 Landsat data to create annual water masks, inundation frequency and wetting/drying trends.

Inundation frequency will be used to generate future annual water masks to update both frequencies and trends. Within the three broad dynamic surface water application areas of safety, climate, and wildlife, a number of specific applications and investigations are already planned or underway.
